The Vampire Diaries s01e11 Episode Script


Previously on The Vampire Diaries: For over a century, I have lived in secret.
Until now.
I know the risk, but I have to know her.
A dead ringer for Katherine.
That necklace contains an herb called vervain.
It protects you from being compelled.
- Our love for Katherine wasn't real.
- I'm gonna bring her back.
There's a tomb underneath the church.
The spell sealed Katherine in that tomb.
- Hello, Jenna.
- Logan.
- Who are you? - Friend of Jenna's.
Alaric Saltzman.
I'm your new history teacher.
Grams just showed me this.
I'm a witch.
- His face was like - Are you okay? - What's going on? - I'm gonna tell her the truth.
I know you think you brought this bad stuff into my life, but my life already had it.
- This is different.
- I know what I want.
I've never been in your room before.
This room holds every memory important enough to hold onto.
Elena? Elena, it's Stefan.
I know that this picture must've confused you.
But I can explain.
I need to explain.
So please, when you get this, call me.
How you doing in there? - Damon.
- You look stuck.
- It's my seat belt.
I can't get it off.
- Shh, shh, shh.
Let me get you out of here.
I want you to put your hands on the roof.
Just like that.
You ready? One, two, three.
You okay? Can you stand? Is anything broken? Whoa, you're fading fast, Elena.
Elena, look at me.
Look at me.
- I look like her.
- What? Upsy-daisy.
I found one.
After years of research and study, there it was, right in front of me.
I was terrified.
As I stared it in the eyes, I drove a stake through its heart.
I was right about Mystic Falls.
There is evil here.
I can sense it, feel it.
It's everywhere.
Oh It's not even 7 yet.
Which means you shouldn't be awake for at least six hours.
I hate morning people.
I'm gonna be home late.
- I love you.
- I love you too.
- Where are we? - In Georgia.
Georgia? No, no, no, we're not.
- Seriously, Damon, where are we? - Seriously, we're in Georgia.
- Ugh.
- How you feeling? L There's no broken bones.
I checked.
My car.
There was a man I hit a man.
But then he got up and Who was that? That's what I would like to know.
Where's my phone? Okay, we really need to go back.
Nobody knows where I am.
Pull over.
I mean it, Damon.
Pull over.
Stop the car.
Oh, you were so much more fun when you were asleep.
I'm fine.
We have to go back.
Oh, come on.
Look, we've already come this far.
Why are you doing this? I can't be in Georgia.
I wrecked my car.
I have to go home.
This is kidnapping.
That's a little melodramatic, don't you think? You're not funny.
You can't do this.
- I'm not going to Georgia.
- You're in Georgia.
Without your magic little necklace, I might add.
I could very easily make you agreeable.
What are you trying to prove? That's my phone.
It's your boyfriend.
I'll take it.
Elena's phone.
Where is she? Why do you have her phone? - Is she okay? - Elena? No, she's right here.
- And, yes, she's fine.
- Where are you? Let me speak to her.
He wants to talk to you.
Yeah, l You know, I don't think she really wants to talk to you right now.
Damon, I swear to God, if you touch her You have a good day.
Bye, now.
Look, no one knows where I am.
Can we please just go back? We're almost there.
- Where is "there"? - A place outside of Atlanta.
Oh, come on, Elena, you don't wanna go back right now, do you? What's the rush? Time out.
Trust me, your problems are still gonna be there when you get home.
Look, step away from your life for five minutes.
Five minutes.
- Am I gonna be safe with you? - Yes.
Will you promise not to do that mind-control thing with me? Yes.
Can I trust you? Get in the car.
Come on.
Hey, hey, Mr.
Hey, Jeremy.
I, uh, can't find my ring.
L I took it off for the gym and I thought I put it There it is.
Losing family heirlooms, bad.
- How's your extra credit? Pick a topic? - Uh, Mystic Falls, the Civil War era.
- What's the angle? - My family.
I found a journal of an ancestor who lived in the 1800s.
And the Gilberts were one of the original founding families of Mystic Falls, so That sounds good.
- Bonnie.
- Stefan.
- Hey.
- Hi.
I, uh, haven't seen you lately.
How are you doing with everything? I'm fine.
All's fine.
- Good.
- Yeah.
- Are you back in school? - No, actually I came here to find you.
I was hoping you could help me with something.
A spell.
Stefan, look, I know Elena is okay with all of this and I appreciate what you did to help me, but I'm not ready to dive into it yet.
I understand that, but I need your help.
It's Elena.
She's with Damon.
I have Elena's necklace.
I was hoping you can use this to make some connection.
- I need to know she's okay.
- How do you know I can do this? I've known a few witches.
I've seen what they can do.
- I'm still new at it.
- It's okay.
Give it a shot.
All right.
There's nothing.
Nothing's happening.
Usually, there's an image or - Tell me if anyone's looking.
- Okay.
- What is it? - Something's wrong.
- With Elena? - With me.
There's something wrong with me.
I have to go.
I'm sorry, Stefan.
I can't help you.
- So where's my car? - Uh, I pulled it off to the side of the road.
I don't think anyone will bother it.
What about that man in the road? - Was he a? - From what I could tell, yeah.
You didn't know him? If I've never met him, I wouldn't know him.
I mean, it's not like we all hang out together at the Vamp Bar and Grill.
Where are we You brought me to a bar? I'm not old enough.
They're not gonna let me in.
Sure they will.
No, it can't be.
Damon? Aw My honey pie.
- Mm.
- Mm.
Listen up, everybody.
Here's to the man that broke my heart, crushed my soul, destroyed my life and ruined any and all chances of happiness.
Drink up.
So how'd he rope you in? I'm not roped in.
Actually, I'm dating his Oh, honey, if you're not roped, you're whipped.
- Either way, just enjoy the ride.
- Okay.
- So how did you two meet? - Ha, ha.
You went to college? I've been on a college campus, yes.
About 20 years ago, when I was a sweet young freshman I met this beautiful man and I fell in love.
And then he told me about his little secret made me love him even more.
I had a little secret of my own that I was dying to share with somebody.
She's a witch.
- You changed my world, you know.
- I rocked your world.
He is good in the sack, isn't he? But mostly he's just, uh a walk-away Joe.
So What is it that you want? Oh, my God, I am so sorry.
There was this one book wedged Kaplunk, kaboom.
Are you okay? Yeah, yeah, I'm fine.
Oh - Um, I'm Anna.
- Uh, Jeremy.
Oh, thank God, you're back.
And hello to you too.
- What's the matter? - My powers are gone, Grams.
I can't do anything, even when I concentrate.
There's nothing in any of these books that tell me how to get them back.
Hang on, now.
Just calm down.
Tell me what happened.
- I can't.
- We're keeping secrets now? I have to.
I'm sorry, I promised.
Please, help me.
Well, first of all, there's nothing in any of these that's gonna help you.
If you're blocked, it's in here.
You gotta clear it out, then you're back in business.
Clear what out? Whatever's got you so scared.
Hi, Jenna, I'm so sorry.
Where are you Why didn't you call? I was so tired last night.
I fell asleep at Bonnie's.
And then this morning I just wanted to get to school.
Are you okay? You know, Stefan and stuff.
Come on, there's gotta be another way.
After all these years, it's still only Katherine.
How do you know she's alive? Well, you help me get into that tomb and we'll find out.
I already did, 20 years ago, remember? Comet, crystal, spell.
There's a little problem with number two.
I don't have the crystal.
That's it, Damon.
There is no other way.
It's Emily's spell.
What about new spell with a new crystal that overrides Emily's spell? It doesn't work that way, baby.
Emily's spell is absolute.
You can't get into that tomb.
Come on.
Hello? Anybody here? Elena, is that you? I'm here.
Where are you? You lied.
Not until I explain, please.
So you didn't lie? Tell me where you are so I can come get you.
How am I connected to Katherine, Stefan? I honestly don't know.
And I'm supposed to believe that? It's the truth, I Listen.
You okay? Don't pretend to care.
I know you're gloating inside.
Hey, it's Bree.
You'll never guess who walked into my bar.
Hello? Anybody? - Hi.
- Can I help you? I'm Stefan, I'm a friend of Bonnie's.
Her dad told me that she might be here.
She was.
Not anymore.
- Do you know where she went? - No, but you do.
I'm sorry? I told her to face down her fear.
And I'm sensing now that you know exactly why she was scared.
You know what I am, and yet you offered me your hand.
Which means you wanted me to see that I can trust you.
Can you? I trust you'll keep her safe.
Better be on your way, then.
I'm not gonna invite you in.
Sure you understand why.
This aisle is local and state history.
And Civil War is one over.
- What do you need? - Local, 1860s.
- Do you work here? - Nope.
Uh, you want reference.
This way.
Um, home-schooled.
I study here for a mock-school environment.
Ah, here we go.
Original settlers, town archives, founders' stuff.
It's all here.
So, what's your topic? Uh, the town's fear surrounding the war and how it influenced certain writers.
You might wanna focus that.
The origins of local folklore and myths.
You mean the vampires.
Let's just say that I'm descended from Katherine.
Does that make me part-vampire? Vampires can't procreate.
But we love to try.
If you were related it would mean that Katherine had a child before she was turned.
Did Stefan think that he could use me to replace her? Kind of creepy if you ask me.
Come on, you don't like pickles? What's wrong with you? How can you even eat, if technically you're supposed to be? Dead? It's not such a bad word.
As long as I keep a healthy diet of blood in my system my body functions pretty normally.
This nice act, is any of it real? Mm-hm.
- Here you go, honey.
- Thank you.
I'll have one too.
Hmm? Time out, remember? For five minutes.
Yeah, well, that five minutes is gonna need a beer.
There you go.
You're kidding me, right? There's no such thing as vampires.
Well, there's not a lot of documentation but stories have been told since the Civil War.
My granddad used to tell me these creepy stories.
And he said that his granddad told them to him.
That would be folklore.
Vampires are a metaphor for the demons of the day.
- Which are? - The Union soldiers.
I've read the stories.
They talk about the enemy.
The demons that attack at night.
That sounds like vampires to me.
Allegorical vampires, which is what it is.
Creative expression during a very volatile time.
I mean, a country at war doesn't want realism, they want fantasy.
Thus, vampire fiction.
Man, you're smart.
I gotta give it to you, when I first saw you, I missed it.
Yeah, I've, uh I've had a rough go of it lately, but I'm just now getting back to my old self.
Well, good luck on your paper.
I gotta get home.
My great-grandfather actually showed me a journal once of an ancestor.
And he had written all of this creepy stuff about vampires.
It was actually really believable.
- Wait, a journal? - Yeah.
Why? Are you sure you have to go? Come on.
Come on, phone.
- Get away from me.
- Bonnie.
Bonnie, it's me.
It's Stefan.
Stefan? Okay, the ground gave way and I fell.
It's okay, it's okay.
Calm down.
- Come on, let's get you out of here.
- How? Just close your eyes.
Trust me.
Come here.
You can open your eyes now.
- I didn't wanna scare you.
- How did you know where I was? Your grandmother told me what you were doing and I guessed the where.
I heard them down there.
Behind the door.
- Are they in pain? - In the beginning, yes, but not anymore.
They've starved to the point of desiccation.
- But if they have blood they'll - That's not gonna happen, Bonnie.
They can't get out.
Emily saw to that when she had you destroy the crystal.
You're safe.
- Ready? Go.
- Uh, uh-huh.
That's three.
You need a bib? Sorry, I can't unhinge my jaw like a snake to consume alcohol.
All right, who's next? Another round, Bree? Honey, you should be on the floor.
I am not even drunk.
My tolerance is, like, way up here.
All right, here you go.
So you have no idea where the journal is? Nope.
Gramps died and all the kids split his stuff.
I can ask.
I just find it weird our ancestors kept the same kind of journals.
It's crazy.
- Maybe it's based in some partial reality.
- No, it's gotta be metaphorical.
My ancestor wrote short stories.
So that's why you're hung up on the fiction of it.
No, I'm hung up on fiction of it all because I've seen The Lost Boys and Near Dark, like, 50 times.
Are those movies? Heh.
Hey, I've never seen them.
Maybe we can have a fright night and rent a whole bunch of vampire movies.
Uh Yeah, yeah, sure.
Why does that sound like a, "No way in hell"? - Sorry, I'm blunt.
- No, no, it's, uh I don't want you to get the wrong idea.
I just recently got out of something.
It's a little too soon, you know.
No, please.
Yeah, no worries.
I meant as friends.
So, yeah.
Look, I really gotta go, so Nice meeting you, Jeremy.
Yeah! - Hello? - Elena.
- Jenna.
Uh, hold on, it's loud in here.
- Elena, where are you? - Are you okay? - Hmm? Yeah.
I'm good.
Everything's fine.
- Hold on, I can't hear you.
- It's not fine.
I got a call from Hello? Thank you.
Hey, where's your girl? Hmm.
She was right back there.
Damon, no.
Ow! What the hell? No.
- Who are you? - That's perfect.
You have no idea.
- What're you talking about? What did he do? - He killed my girlfriend.
What did she do to you, huh? What did she do to you? Nothing.
I don't understand.
My girlfriend went to visit Stefan, and Damon killed her.
Got it? Lexi? Lexi was your girlfriend? She told me about you.
She said that you were human.
I was.
Lexi turned you? If you wanna be with someone forever, you have to live forever.
She loved you.
She said that when it's real, you can't walk away.
Well, that's a choice you're not gonna have to make.
Please, don't hurt him.
I'm doing you a favor.
Lexi loved you and she was good, and that means you're good too.
Be better than him.
Don't do this, I'm begging you.
Thank you.
It wasn't for you.
Well, now, look who's returned from battle.
Can I talk to your friend for a minute? Thank you.
I appreciate your help, Stefan.
You're welcome, Sheila.
I wasn't sure you remembered.
- October 1969.
- I was barely a teenager.
And you were leading what was probably the only anti-war sit-in within miles of Mystic Falls.
You know, when you spoke, people were mesmerized.
I know I was.
Until the cops showed up.
You took a big risk coming to see me earlier.
Letting me read you, realize who you were.
Could've gone in a completely different way.
Well, your family has a very long history of keeping my secret.
I knew that I could trust you if you believed that I was worthy of your trust.
Bonnie knows, doesn't she? Yes.
Well, please understand that our loyalty can only extend so far.
This town won't be easy on any of us if they figure it out.
And I'll protect my own before anybody else.
I know that.
As long as we're clear.
Good night, then.
Good night, Sheila.
We were just leaving.
I wanted to say goodbye.
Good to see you again, Damon.
No kiss? I'm full of vervain.
I put it in everything I drink.
And you're telling me this.
Why? Lexi was my friend.
How could you? The tomb can be opened.
- You're lying.
- Emily's grimoire, her spell book.
If you know how she closed the tomb, the reversal will be in her book.
- You can open that tomb.
- Where is this book? - l - You have no idea.
I am telling you the truth.
And I believe you.
My dear, sweet Bree.
That's why I'm almost sorry.
So why did you bring me with you? Well, you're not the worst company in the world, Elena.
- You should give yourself more credit.
- Seriously? I don't know, you were there in the road all damsel-in-distress-like.
And I knew it would piss off Stefan.
And you're not the worst company in the world, Elena.
- I used to be more fun.
- You did okay.
I saved your life.
- I know.
- And don't you forget it.
- Hi.
- Hi.
You could have told me.
I wanted to tell you.
You said no more lies, only the truth.
I can handle the truth, Stefan.
As crazy as it is, I can handle the fact you are a vampire.
And you have a vampire brother and that my best friend is a witch.
I can accept the fact that the world is a more mysterious place than I ever thought possible.
But this? This lie, I cannot take.
What am I to you? Who am I to you? You are not Katherine.
You are the opposite of everything she was.
And when did you figure that out? Before you kissed me? Before we slept together? Before I met you.
What? First day of school when we met.
It wasn't for the first time, Elena.
- Then when was it? - May 23rd, 2009.
But that was That was the day your parents' car went off the bridge.
You were there? Every couple of years, I come back here.
To see Zach and see my home.
And last spring, I was out in the woods, by Old Wickery Bridge.
And I heard the accident.
All of it.
I was fast getting there, but not fast enough.
Car was already submerged.
Your dad, he was still conscious.
I was able to get to him.
But he wouldn't let me help him Until I helped you.
Oh, my God.
When I woke up in the hospital, nobody could figure out how I got out of the car.
They said it was a miracle.
I went back for them.
But it was too late.
I couldn't I couldn't save them.
When I pulled you out I looked at your face and you looked like Katherine.
I couldn't believe the resemblance.
After that, I spent months making sure that you weren't her.
I watched you, I learned everything that I could about you.
And I saw that you were nothing like Katherine.
And I wanted to leave town, but, Elena, I couldn't I couldn't leave without knowing you.
I'm so sorry that I didn't tell you.
I wanted to.
But you were so sad and Why do I look like her? - Elena, you've been through so much.
- Why do I look like her, Stefan? What are you not telling me? It didn't make any sense to me.
You were a Gilbert, she was a Pierce.
But the resemblance was too similar.
And then I learned the truth.
You were adopted, Elena.
There you are.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Okay, look.
I know I don't know you, so don't ask me why I did this.
I just Sometimes Well, mostly all the time, I have this need to be right.
So I Googled and - What is it? - Proof.
Sort of.
- What does this mean? - Well, I only went as far back as 1942.
And found that there's been a string of animal attacks periodically in and around this town, for the past 75 years.
It's consistent.
Here we go.
In '62, five bodies found.
In '53, four people killed.
In '74, three people dead.
And there's been five this year.
All attacked, all suffered major blood loss.
As in, drained of blood.
How do you know this? Your birth certificate from the city records.
It says Elena Gilbert, Mystic Falls General.
But there's no record of your mother ever being admitted.
There's no record of her ever being pregnant.
What else do you know? I would've had to look into the Pierce family.
And I couldn't do that.
That's too much of a risk.
If someone found out I was asking about Katherine Listen to me it doesn't matter.
You are the woman that I love.
I love you.
I don't set a lot of rules, Elena.
Not with you.
I trust you to tell me the truth.
Where were you? And why did you lie to me about it? - I thought we were closer than that.
- Now is not the time to talk about lies.
Don't do that, don't turn this on me.
I didn't do anything.
Okay, question.
Am I adopted? I trust you to tell me the truth too, Jenna.
How could you not tell me? I thought we were closer than that.
Elena, I didn't They asked me not to.
I don't wanna hear it.
I love you.
I'm gonna be late tonight.
